The Times of India, Chennai, 27th  Sep 2013
 
A Brazilian family have shown their dedication to saving endangered tigers by moving seven of them into their home. 
 
Father of three Ary Borges rescued two tigers from a circus eight years ago and built a sanctuary in his garden. Now the family live, eat and even swim with the giant man-eaters in their backyard pool in Maringa, near Sao Paulo. And shockingly Borges even lets his two years old grand daughter, Ra-yara, ride on the back of the fully grown big cats. Borges, 43, said, I was never worried about my daughters co-existing with these animals. you have to slow the animals respect and love, that`s how you get it back from them."
 
The 43-year old and his daughters Nayara, 20, Uyara, 23 and Deusanira, 24, walk the tigers on leads and feed meat directly into their mouths. 
 
They even allow them into their Kitchen during mealtime and let them lounge around the house.
